Just a few hours away England will take on Ukraine to try for their place in the final eight in Euro 2012. At work today I think I can see defeat on the faces of my Ukrainian colleagues already, as they have resigned to the fact they’re going out.
Or actually despite my bluff it’s far from sure, especially following the last games from group A where Greece got through knocking out Russia, after seeing that anything is possible. Although as we finally have Rooney in our line up I’m quietly (or not so quietly) confident.
However it’s not all fun and games at Euro 2012, and I’d like to use this post to highlight the plight of less fortunate… Ukrainian reporters. All this poor girl is trying to do is make a piece to camera for the local news, but surrounded by Dutch fans – who at the time still think they’re in with a chance – it’s just not happening. Truly awful… Truly funny.
